Carnival

Please visit our website at www.bowater.fr to see more of our work. 
Most of our images are available for sale as prints/fine art prints, mostly as limited editions.
 
If you love history, art and architecture, you'll love Venice.  If you have a predisposition to nostalgia or melancholia or a susceptibility to romance, you'll love Venice.
 
Our February trip was only our second visit to Venice and, despite the crowds and the commercialism, the cold winds and the relative expense, we still love Venice.
 
A magnificent and relevant costume seen at the Carnival, with the Bridge of Sighs in the background.  The reference to ships and ship building and one of the world's greatest maritime traditions adds greatly to an intriguing costume.

Somehow, Venice lends itself to melancholia.
